Forget Turkey Day, Black Friday and even Cyber Monday. Miami's huge-as-hell holiday week kicks off tomorrow with the first of the Art Basel Miami Beach parties.

Daytime may be for the galleries but nighttime is once again a hotel-heavy affair, and one of the hottest invites in town comes courtesy of none other than Andre Balazs.

Tomorrow night Balazs is hosting the launch of super-cool designer Marc Newson's speedboat, the Aquariva--yep, that's it pictured above--at the The Standard Miami.

The soiree is invite-only but since it's taking place on the dock of the hotel between 5–8 p.m. perhaps the strong swimmers or keen kayakers among you can paddle by for a gander.

And if you're lucky enough to be the kind of person invited to this bash you can also book a "Sea Trial" on the Aquariva from Wednesday to Friday.

Newson's design for the iconic Italian brand debuted in September, with a limited edition of just 22. And if you miss out on the Standard's preview of the boat this week, you can always buy your own: they're available through New York City's Gagosian Gallery.

Rooms at The Standard are available tonight from $239, but are sold out for the rest of Art Basel.
